Frozen Heart by Steveoc86
Frozen Heart
I painted this today.........

A freind wanted an illustration of a 'Frozen Heart' so I thought I'd give that ago.....

Not sure which part of my brain this came from. Possibly the strangest thing I have painted.
Hi all,


I have been thinking about changing part of my Melanorosaurus painting. On the left of the picture is a rock face. In terms of the way it's painted it's one of my favourite parts of the image. But I think It ruins it compositionally. It looks a bit unnatural, and it follows the line of the malanorosaurus neck, which looks funny. So would anyone object if I changed that part of the image?

The reason I ask is because I don't want to upload a new version of the image. I'd rather just upload over the original, so it might be...unfair to those who faved it in its original state. If I do this I'll add a link to the original in the description so it won't be completely lost.   

Below is what I have in mind. Please note it's just something I quickly knocked together using the clone tool, it won't look exactly like this.…

The only problem I have with this is the new space. Do I just leave it bare? I was thinking of adding a little Eocursor-type dino in there. It would be small so not too distracting. Thoughts?

I'll post the final version here before I replace the original so you can have your say.

Hi Steve, I teach English at a junior high school in Japan and would like to make a dinosaur poster. Jobaria happens to be one of my favorite dinosaurs and I would like to use your work for the poster. I also would like to post your profile picture. Could you give me permission to do this? -Jesse-

Sure! That's fine. Just make sure you use the most recent version. What do you need the profile picture for?

What is your opinion?

Yesterday, I try to forget digital method and pay attention to David Peters advice for making my sketch in black by ink and oil paper….in result, I print my sketch and buy several ink pens (for drawing of different line size) and start my work…the result was good but after scan, I had problem for edit….suddenly, I found a new method for making my sketch in black by “ACDsee photo edit” software without use of print and ink….first, I use “Auto levels” for making my gray lines in black and then, I use “Exposure” for make background completely white…then, I edit some lines in “paint Microsoft”… may think it is strange way for edition….but my limitation make me creative for create new ways for edition… strange but a possible way …. my personal computer do not adapt by photo shop and in Iran, speed of internet is very low for download “Illustration adobe” software….Now, after ten horses, I finished my artwork for making it in new version…..I hope you and your family like my new art……It is my first art work with such method(a white skeleton In black flesh)…I am happy I can development my ability….previous week, I did not have skill for making my artwork similar to Scott Hartman art and today, I can create an amateur art like to Scott Hartman Method…I try to perform all my effort for my personal good goal and I think every person should perform similar way if he (she) believed to his(her) goal.
